SINTEF Ocean Fisheries Technology
We are taking part in the development of the fishing fleet of tomorrow by contributing to achieve sustainable utilization of marine resources in a way that is profitable for the fisherman. This mean developing more efficient fishing methods, gear, and ways to better utilize the catch.
Flume tank in Hirtshals
The core products in our flume tank are research projects and commercial testing of trawls and trawl doors. Numerous trawls have over the years been tested here, and fishermen and net manufacturers have learned to optimize the use of their gear. Also most new developments and selectivity devises have had a round in the flume tank before they went to sea, for the final tests.
Decision support for fishing vessels based on marine ecosystem models and fishery data
FishGuider will increase the income and reduce the costs related to catch of pelagic fish species such as herring, cod and capelin. This will be achieved by development and validation of new theory for fish migration and a novel guidance system for fishing companies.
Re-FOOD is an international partnership for research and education in energy efficient resource utilization in FOOD value chains between Norway and India.
The climate is changing in the Arctic and projections by the IPCC suggests valuable marine resources are migrating further north. What does this mean for fishers, for tourists, for international politics and future communities in the far north, and for the Svalbard fisheries protection zone and Norwegian sovereignty in the area?
The DataBio project starts trials of 26 bioeconomy pilots
The development of a sustainable bioeconomy in Europe is expected to get a big boost from Big Data technologies thanks to a project co-funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.
Innovative Technologies for Sustainable Fisheries
SINTEF Ocean participates in a European research project called SMARTFISH H2020, coordi-nated by SINTEF Ocean in Norway, which aim is to develop technological solutions to an ef-ficient, compliant and environmentally sustainable fishing sector
